No he was attending to them, never far from them, but last night i looked and only saw maybe one, and think it was dead, floating about 1 inch below surface and away from the nest and he had no interest in it. I moved the bubbles and looked under the leaf it was empty now. I had see the eggs and they had live in two that i could see when i first found them.
So girls are back in tank, male is now alone, an today built a beautiful bubble nest!!!! He is a good father. But now i have 3 unwanted males, lol. oh well.
Its odd that he didnt show himself before putting in the big tank. He was with a girl with only the plastic mesh divider in the one gallon tub. No bubbles, no flaring, no nothing. And he still looks like a girl to me. Now im wondering if these are all plackets. Well except goldie, she is supper delta/hm
Im sorry for all the drama and thank you all very much. It might be nice to have a sticky, not this one, lol, but a real one.
Is your female a male and did you just get a surprise mating?
Or Did you just get a surprise spawning?
Shrugs, something like that.. =)
